Detailed ItineraryAll days not listed are spent at sea enjoying the excellent facilities aboard Magellan. Ports of call may be subject to change.
Join Magellan as she heads off on a wonderful cruise adventure this evening. Spend time getting to know the crew, your fellow passengers, your cabin and the ship as you begin your exciting voyage.
Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, is Magellan's first stop, but from here you'll turn south heading towards Spain, the Atlantic and warmer waters. Lazy days become warmer, and you'll be able to enjoy all the pleasures of cruising, including the ship's host of amenities.
Today, you'll arrive in the verdant, mid-Atlantic Azores archipelago. After a few days at sea it's a welcome chance to step ashore and explore historic Ponta Delgada, a stopping-off point for transatlantic sailors through the centuries.
Reach Bridgetown, Barbados, and discover the bustling, colourful, cricket-loving gateway to some of the Caribbean's most highly favoured watering holes.
Magellan's second sun-kissed Caribbean call is at charming, colonial Willemstad, capital of Curacao.
Beautiful Aruba, where you'll find both pristine tropical beaches and European-influenced step-gabled houses, is the second call Magellan makes in the stunning Dutch Antilles.
Spend today sailing from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean along the Panama Canal, the famous waterway that connects the two bodies of water at the same time as it 'separates' the two 'halves' of the Americas.
Get a taste of Mexico on a full-day call in Acapulco - one-time playground of the likes of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and JFK. The idyllic setting has withstood the tests of time and tourist development.
After a week of balmy days at sea, discover the breathtaking islands of French Polynesia. Magellan's first call is tiny Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas Isles, where she'll tie up at Taiohae giving you the chance to enjoy this friendly, tropical idyll.
Idyllic Tahiti - perhaps the most famous of all the South Pacific islands - is Magellan's next call. The colourful, bustling capital, Pape'ete, boasts a historic market, lush gardens and a perfect lagoon - all straight out of a Gauguin painting.
Today, legendary Bora Bora, a quintessential island paradise, with mountains, lagoons and sublime beaches, completes Magellan's trio of French Polynesian calls.
Cross the International Date Line and arrive in Auckland, New Zealand's 'City of Sails'. Here, some 20 per cent of the inhabitants are of Maori or South Pacific origins and their history and artefacts are preserved at the Auckland Museum. Explore, or take a trip up the 328-metre Sky Tower for outstanding city views.
Crossing the Cook Strait, Magellan makes a last New Zealand call in the cosmopolitan Kiwi capital, Wellington. Discover its striking modern architecture, colourful Botanic Gardens and its host of bars, restaurants and cafes before Magellan turns west once more to cross the Tasman Sea.
Vibrant, laid-back, fun-loving Sydney is one of the world's great cities and your final port on this wonderful cruise. Disembark to explore a city renowned for its its iconic Opera House, Harbour Bridge, famous beaches and stunning Botanic Gardens. You'll enjoy two nights' accommodation before your included return flight. Our coach will transfer you from the hotel to the airport, and your flight will leave Sydney that evening and arrive in the UK late the following morning.
